article description
We are motivated to study screen-savers because they represent a minimally invasive technology for volunteering CPU services. Typically, computers are used between 40 and 60 hours out of a 168-hour week. This represents approximately 35% utilization. Our theory is that a screen-saver based cycle scavenging will improve this number dramatically.
